I was able to recover my harddisk with following details from the BUSY (aka BSY) error by using the USB to TTL method of issuing serial ATA commands to the PCB. Its working fine now and have backed up all the data.
Seagate Barracuda 7200.11
S/N : 6TE08QZ5
Date Code: 09204
Site Code: SU
PCB (printed on right corner of PCB) : 100512588 Rev A
However it still needs a firmware update which is not yet posted on the seagate website for drives with firmware SD35.
Can anyone provide me with the firmware file, you can upload it to any sharing host or can directly email me on email@example.com. The file I am looking for is " brinks-3d6h-sd3b.iso ". I have already done it for my other drives so I know the procedure.
It would be a great help and I would be thankful
Once again, Thank you everyone for this ground breaking tremendous effort to research and offer a practical remedy thousands of people like us.
